Good morning marcgregory.

For your niece to be legally adopted, your sister has to relinquish her parental authority over her child. This may be done administratively, or judicially. This will give your niece the status of "a child legally available for adoption".

Then once your niece is already legally free for adoption, you may now file before a Family Court a joint Petition of yourself and your wife to adopt your niece.
